We are 2/3 of the way through our academic year, and once again students are breathing a sigh of relief as Week 10 draws to a close. They’ve worked hard this quarter and have produced impressive academic and creative projects in an amazingly short period of time. It has been our pleasure this past week to tour their final presentations and open houses. Over the course of the week, we have both learned from them and admired their achievements.

We want to thank the programs Rites of Passage, Art/Work, Diversity of Life, Gender Performances and Evergreen’s Mycology students for inviting us to document your final presentations. We enjoyed visiting with all of you! Here are some of our favorite images from the week.
